At the CDGNC we’re doing our best to ensure players, staff, and spectators stay safe during Championship Week amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe this can be accomplished if everyone – competitors, staff, and spectators – take precautions seriously.
Here is a look at general guidelines that will be exercised throughout Championship Week (April 5-10) for everyone involved.
For the players, all aspects of the event including turning in scorecards, team play, spectator interactions, and more will have event specific COVID-19 guidelines available with the virtual player guide.
KNOW THE SYMPTOMS
If you feel sick or you feel you have been in contact with someone infected with COVID-19, whether you are a competitor, staff member or spectator, report your condition to CDGNC officials. Do not come to the North Cove Disc Golf and Social Club.
Contact: Event Director John Baker: firstname.lastname@example.org
Pay attention to the following symptoms: Fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, headache, and new loss of taste or smell. For a full list of COVID-19 symptoms visit the CDC.
Also keep in mind that due to limitations from the pandemic, only registered players, approved staff, and limited spectators (players/coaches/immediate family) will be allowed to enter the North Cover property. This means no spectators or caddies will be attending Championship events and competitors may only be accompanied by coaches, teammates, and immediate family.
*Only pre-approved volunteer staff members will be permitted on the North Cove property. Do not come to the course unless you fall into one of the following categories.
- Registered players
- Approved staff
- Limited spectators
- Immediate Family
ARRIVING AT NORTH COVE
In order to gain entry to the North Cove venue, each day of Championship Week, all players, staff, and approve spectators must undergo a brief health screening.
Anyone on the North Cove Disc Golf and Social Club Property will be expected to wear a face covering. Players will be required to wear face coverings anytime they are not actively throwing shots.
Even though a mask mandate is in place, all in attendance should still practice physical distance as much as possible. Be responsible and strive to maintain a minimum of 6 feet from others.
*Hand sanitizers will be positioned at every hole.
FOOD & DRINK
Unlike previous years, there will be no catering or concessions on site. All competitors and staff should plan on bringing food, drinks, and other items necessary to be comfortable throughout the day.
Competitors will be expected to touch only their equipment and staff will also be asked to only touch their belongings and materials for their duties.
Unfortunately, many of the CDGNC ancillary events will not be possible this year. The following have been suspended for 2021.
· Opening Ceremony
· Closing Ceremony
· Distance Contest
· Player Party
· On-site Pro Shop
· Shuttle service
If there is extreme weather during Championship Week (lightning storm, hurricane, tornado, etc.), the North Cove Pro Shop and cart storage area will be available for shelter. Keep in mind, social distance guidelines will remain in effect inside. Face coverings must be worn at all times while inside. CDGNC social media channels will alert players and staff during these scenarios.
NO MOBILE OFFICES THIS YEAR
There will be no mobile offices on site in 2021. The tournament staff will operate out of the North Cove Pro Shop behind the green of Hole 18 and next to the parking area. Only authorized staff will be allowed inside.
An official scoring area will be positioned outside of the Pro Shop, near Hole 18’s greens.
Even with these restrictions and the loss of some of our favorite traditions, Championship Week is still building up to be another incredible experience. We believe that with the help from all of our competitors and staff we can make this Championship Week – even amid the current challenges – safe and special for everyone involved.
